Starting a new career on the other side of the world is an exciting but often daunting decision. When researching the transition I came across MEF (Making English Fun) and got in touch. I had my initial interview with Derek and the experience was both informal and informative. He gave me answers to all the questions I had, from the logistics of relocation, to the teaching and the training. I instantly felt at ease and any concerns I had were transformed into excitement about my new life in China.
MEF supported me the entire way through visa process, which was incredibly helpful as there were a few hiccups along the way (through no fault of MEF), and then I was ready to fly. I arrived in China at the beginning of October and after an enjoyable long weekend with my fellow recruits, we began a week of training which has set me in excellent stead for my permanent position in Chongqing.
On arrival in China I was given hotel accommodation for a week and then set up with a fantastic (and very spacious!) apartment after that. My job is enjoyable and often exciting. I teach a great bunch of kids who are eager to lean and happy to see me. MEF have their own curriculum which is easy to teach and fun for the children to learn. Any questions and queries I’ve had have been answered quickly and have been of great help. MEF have been excellent throughout the entire process and I cannot fault the support I have received. They make English fun, and they have made moving to China fun too. I would 100% recommend.
